perspective from someone totally new to the Jeep thing: I was waiting for the chance to order a 2014 after test driving the 2013, but honestly one of the big things I liked about the Jeep thing is the styling:
and now this front-end is a good deal less unique IMO
It is starting to get uncomfortably close to this ladies suburban conveyance:
no matter how the headlamps end up.
the body colored "smile" and the loss of those chrome jail-cell bars is a step backward! The diamond mesh is gone as well.
Obviously the 2013 models on the lot will be a good deal easier to negotiate soon.
will the 8 speed by any longer legged?
Will the updated center stack be worth losing that front-end?
I was sure before now, now, not really sure
